Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
For each of us, there is going to be those times in our lives when we find ourselves in the valley. The valley is the times in our lives when we experience seemingly dangerous and deadly situations. The valley is also the place in which our hopes and dreams are exposed to attacks by our enemies. However, because the Lord is our shepherd, we can face each of those situations with a heart full of confidence. This one of the blessed results of the Lord’s coming into our world for us.
Father, as we reflect upon all of the wonderful things you have done for us, we thank you and praise you for the confidence we have through Christ Jesus our Lord. Keep us close to your heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
– Joel & Victoria Osteen
